Tonight, the boys and I went ‘street stalking’ for homes dressed in all the festive cheer. In previous years, we’ve seen the hours lining up along Beach Road with all their shimmer and light, but this time, we thought we would discover a couple of hidden secrets. A scanned the internet and some Facebook recommendations from friends to see what was around locally. I had no idea that people actually jumped out of their cars, were allowed to roam around the front gardens of these home and enjoy the beautiful displays of lights, blow up Santas and Christmas trees and painstaking effort some people put into creating these illuminating marvels, but it’s nice to see the Christmas spirit is alive amongst the community.
For the locals, we started in Park Road Cheltenham… the one and only place where I forgot to take my camera (sorry). We then drove along Blamey Street in Bentleigh East, turned right into one of the side streets and found a swarm of cars lined up to get into Gladesville Drive… and this is where we got out and took most of our photos.
